How to Fix Common Duvet and Pillow Laundry Problems

Generally, duvets and pillows should be washed every three months. But if you suffer from allergies or asthma, you may need to wash them more frequently. Precautions should also be taken during the summer when dust mites are most active. When it comes to cleaning bedding, hot water is your best friend. Duvets and pillows can be machine-washed on a hot cycle (around 60 degrees Celsius) to kill unwanted guests. Once they’ve been washed, it’s essential to dry them thoroughly – either in the sun or in a tumble dryer set to a high heat setting. This will help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
